Chocolate Garbanzo Bean Cake (Gluten-Free!)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by rakishchick

I halved the Lemony Garbanzo Cake recipe from "The Brilliant Bean" by Sally and Martin Stone and tweaked it a little. Then I baked it in 2 mini springform pans in my toaster oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. It's dense and moist and has a different texture than traditional flour cakes.

This was ok with frosting, but since I like to eat cake without frosting, it definitly needed sugar in the cake. If you don't mind the frosting, then you will probably like this cake.
